Gemeinsam mit der Medizinischen Universität

Troubled Markets for Gene Editing Tools?
Chairs: Lucie Strecker, Jens Hauser, Klaus Spiess

Cheap molecular tools usher in a new era of speed in shifting power. Gene editing, for instance, reconfigures natural and social orders and affects one of the most powerful paradigms of aesthetic production, namely the animation of Pygmalion´s statue. Beyond justified fears of such an era, this talk
tries to explore how applying these tools might contribute to a peaceful coexistence of all species on Earth and beyond?

This LASER talk is embedded in a performative symposium titled “Applied Microperformativity: Live Arts for a Radical Socio-Economic Turn” and asks whether both, artistic media and new biotech markets go beyond the central dogma of molecular biology, with its unidirectionality of information flow from DNA to RNA to metabolism, which conflicts ecological circuits. Might cheap molecular tools provide new
concepts for the industry? Is waste to become an asset instead of a liability?
Contributions come from anthropological research on Asian biotech cities, from ecogenomics, from cutting-edge (artistic) research on biomedia and from new-to-nature microbes before finally, molecular hands-on residencies for artists are outlined.

S. Eben Kerksey (AU/US) Remaking Life with Shenzhen Speed (20 min) is an associate professor of anthropology at Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia. He has published two books with Duke University Press—Freedom in Entangled Worlds (2012) and Emergent Ecologies (2015)—as well as one edited collection: The Multispecies Salon (2014)

Christa Schleper (DE) Diversity Matters: Molecular Tools in Natural Microbial Communities (10 min) is a professor and head of the Department of Ecogenomics and Systems Biology at the University of Vienna.

About

The Angewandte Innovation Laboratory, AIL, founded in autumn 2014 is an initiative of the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
For the first time in Austria Art and Artistic Research is seen as the driving force of Innovation.
Together with partners from the fields of business, science, arts and research and the varying positions, sources and resources of the University of Applied Arts Vienna we offer space and time for exchange, networking, experiments of thoughts and the opportunity to get inspired by new perspectives.

Within specific event formats, we discuss interdisciplinary and socially relevant themes, with the goal of creating ideas, concepts and models. New opportunities and solutions are encouraged to address current issues.

The AIL also hosts the Venedig Biennale Archive Austria with its research terminal and reference library. The Biennale Archive provides extensive digital documentation and photographic material for artistic and scientific research. For using the Archive, please make an appointment.

Das Angewandte Innovation Laboratory, kurz AIL, ist eine Initiative der Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien, gegründet im Herbst 2014.

Das erste Mal in Österreich wird damit Kunst und künstlerische Forschung als zentral treibende Kraft von Innovation begriffen.

Gemeinsam mit Partnern aus den Bereichen Wirtschaft, Wissenschaft, Kunst und Forschung und den vielseitigen Positionen, Quellen und Ressourcen der Angewandten bieten wir Raum und Zeit für Gedankenexperimente, Austausch, Vernetzung und die Möglichkeit von neuen Perspektiven inspiriert zu werden.

Im Rahmen von spezifischen Veranstaltungsformaten diskutieren wir Disziplinen übergreifend und über gesellschaftlich relevante Themen mit dem Ziel Ideen, Konzepte und Modelle entstehen zu lassen.

Das AIL beherbergt außerdem das Venedig Biennale Archiv Austria mit Recherche-Terminal und Handbibliothek. Das Biennale Archiv steht mit umfangreichem digitalen Dokumentations- und Fotomaterial zur künstlerischen und wissenschaftlichen Forschung zur Verfügung. Zur Nutzung des  Venedig Biennale Archivs Austria wird um Voranmeldung gebeten.
